Intensely creepy, which earns Andy a pass on a lot of the substandard stuff he's done (e.g., Fuzzy Marbles).
Try Warbles Dr. M.
I'll defend the spotty nature of Fuzzy Warbles by saying that it was pretty much a collection of demos and song sketches aimed at hardcore fans.

Grrrr. Add up all my typos and I assure you it spells the correct word.

The sad thing for me is no matter how many typos I make I never end up with the correct word. :disshame:

You're right about that Sweet Pea song, I can't believe the man who wrote Strange Town and Tube Station was reduced to writing such drivel.

Noel's lyrics are still vacuous.
It's crap sure enough but it was song about his daughter.
Songs about offspring are in a horrific sub-genre all of their own. Is there a more vomit-inducing song than EC's Tears In Heaven?
I think Tears In Heaven is another issue altogether, bit harsh to bracket it with Little James !!

You mean it needs a sub-genre all of it's own.

I suggested once that Eric Clapton, Bill Cosby, and Dr. Dre start a dead kids supergroup.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Tears in Heaven always enraged me. Way to profit over your kid's death. I don't think he even gave any of the proceeds to charity.

All will be forgiven if he joins the trio I've suggested. The end result would sound worse than a Hoy mixtape and be more depressing than Berlin.

Both chilling, and likely true.

Even Richey would find it a bit much.

He'd be appalled at all the food in the studio.

And what about this nice quote after he stopped playing it in 2004....

"I didn't feel the loss anymore, which is so much a part of performing those songs. I really have to connect with the feelings that were there when I wrote them. They're kind of gone and I really don't want them to come back, particularly. My life is different now. They probably just need a rest and maybe I'll introduce them for a much more detached point of view."

:scared:
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.
